Female Residential Treatment Facilities for Teens

The rates of teen substance abuse, tech addiction, depression, eating disorders, and other mental health conditions among the current generation of teens and young women are climbing. Adolescent girls experience anxiety and insecurities that can stem from social media, the family dynamic, pressure to succeed, challenges in developing authentic connections, body image issues, and underlying trauma. The best residential mental health facilities offer a support system from which girls can draw inspiration and strength on the journey of self-discovery.

Tailored Treatment

Stress has the potential to build resilience and flexibility; anxiety can be a warning signal that keeps us safe. But when they become chronic and overwhelming, adolescent girls feel lost and out of control. Newport Academy has treatment facilities for teens where girls and young women learn to manage both stress and anxiety in healthy ways that help them thrive. Our centers offer the best residential mental health facilities and our evidence-based treatment programs have changed the lives of teenagers across the country. Part of what makes them so successful is that each teen or young adult receives personalized treatment, based on both their gender and the specific issues they face—whether that’s trauma, eating disorders, tech or social media addiction, substance abuse, or other mental health issues.

Our teen residential treatment center programs for adolescent females are gender specific. Girls receive tailored treatment developed and delivered by expert clinical and experiential therapists, as well as individualized education.Our excellent academic program not only keeps kids on track with their studies, it’s also designed to positively impact their confidence, engagement, and sense of accomplishment—supporting their process of healing and recovery.

“Newport Academy really focuses on the family. Family therapy and the individual attention that I got, even as a parent, is what really made a huge difference. There’s not a moment now that I don’t look back and think it was worth it. Newport Academy was able to give my daughter the tools to dig deep, to look at the things she needed to look at, and it helped me. And in helping me, that was the best therapy for her.”

Denise, Parent of a Newport Academy alumni

What Our Alumni Say

“I didn’t know what it was like to actually care for myself and have respect for myself until I went to Newport Academy. I learned to walk with my head held high. You can’t control what comes into your life or what affects your life, but you can control how you react to it, and that is the biggest thing I’ve learned at Newport Academy.”

Meg, Newport Academy alumni

Our program is designed to help teen girls learn how to claim their voice, accept constructive feedback, and develop self-esteem, without the pressure found in mixed-gender environments. Gender-specific environments allow girls to feel comfortable and build peer support, which is essential in the treatment and recovery process. Positive peer interaction helps adolescent girls cultivate healthy boundaries, safely discuss sensitive issues, and develop strong relationships with other females. The seasoned therapeutic staff at our treatment facilities for teens has decades of clinical experience in treating teens, providing positive role-modeling, and supporting girls as they transition from self-destruction to self-esteem.
